Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) is sending signals that he's willing to make a deal on healthcare reform.

In a number of recent interviews, Gregg has said he's willing to work with Democrats to find common ground.

"Let's step back lets start with a blank sheet of paper and let's put on that piece of paper things we can agree about," Gregg told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell today.

"There are a lot of places I see we could make progress on if we started with that blank piece of paper," he added.

The specifics Gregg mentioned--medical malpractice reform and healthy lifestyle incentives--are unlikely to be game changers in the healthcare debate. Nevertheless, the New Hampshire Republican said the White House had been in touch with his office, though no major breakthroughs seem imminent.
